Medications can also be used to relieve symptoms such pain, fever, sinus congestion. Immune system can also be boosted by Gamma interferon therapy, Immunoglobulin therapy, Growth factors therapy. Stem cell transplantation has been proved to offer a permanent cure for several forms of life-threatening immunodeficiency. In this therapy, normal stem cells are transferred to the immunodeficienct person that renders them a normally functioning immune system.
